Taking the topic literal.
My not so celebrated opinion,...
Omission is ALWAYS lying.
It is simply a matter of deciding if the lie justifies the means.
Not telling someone you are planning their 40th birthday party ? ....a given.
Not telling someone you don`t like their hair that day ? ...grey area depending on wether they asked for a opinion or not.
Not telling someone your full sexual history, but disguising it like, ' you didn`t want to hurt their feelings, by talking about all your former flames' ???...you`re now entering 'dickweed' territory.
Not telling your long-term partner you have been intimate with _______. (Because you are a scared/selfish/dellusional/secretive person ),.... ....Definite 'dickweed' territory.
That said, No one gets through life, being entirely 'dickweed-free' . The best thing is to ; 'Do what you know how to do, and when you know better, you do better.'...paraphrasing, but very true.
